Hon Michael Adedeji Killers Paraded: Deadly Robbers Who Killed Ekiti Politician Make Confessional Statements
Police in Ekiti have arrested six suspects, who allegedly killed a member of the House of Assembly, Michael Adedeji.
Adedeji, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker, who represented Ekiti Southwest Constituency II, was shot in the head by suspected robbers last August 10 at Onigaari, GRA, Ado-Ekiti.
The suspects, who had made confessional statements, were paraded yesterday by Police Commissioner Mr. Asuquo Amba in Ado Ekiti.
He said the suspects also killed Mr. Kayode Omowaye when they attacked OJAS Pleasure Hotels in Oye-Ekiti the same day.
Amba said the suspected robbers invaded Afe Babalola University junior staff quarters and snatched a car belonging to Mrs. Bosede Ojo.
He listed the suspects as Dele Obamoyegun, Idowu Sunday, Adeniyi Eunice, Leye Ojo, Akindahunsi Damilola and Olaosebikan Babatunde.
The CP said the suspects were arrested by police officers at Safer highway in front of Ekiti State University gate, Iworoko Ekiti during a stop and search.
The suspects’ leader, Dele Obamoyegun, said: “We shot him (Adedeji) after robbing him. He did not struggle with us, but one of us shot him. I have to confess, we didn’t know he was a lawmaker.”
Amba said items recovered from the suspects included cut-to-size barrel guns, 17 live cartridges, 75 phones, seven laptops, N147,000 cash, four stolen vehicles, one of them belonging to the late Omowaye, among others.
He said the case was being investigated, after which the suspects would be arraigned.
